houses. the only thing that would prevent it is if speaker mcconnell and boehner don't cooperate rate. do you think mcconnell and boehner are in the mood to cooperate with president obama? >> i do believe they're in a mood to cooperate. speaker boehner's talked for a very lopg time about a grand bargain, a big deal, about trying to find some major solution going forward. but the senate hasn't acted on anything, so i think we have to be careful on just placing the blame on mcconnell or boehner. without adding in to this mix, senator reid. >> will you support whatever short-term deal the republican leadership supports? >> i don't know what i'm going to support yet until i see it. the previous congressman you had was on, interesting enough, his office is right next to mine. the fact of the matter is we're going to have to find a place to come together. that the president has offered a 7% solution for a 100% problem. i was struck by the fact that not a single democrat supported boehner's plan b. that was nancy pelosi's solution. raise taxes on those earning a million dollars or more. not one
